HOT TOTS - Ages 18 Months - 2 years
In this class, little gymnasts will learn body awareness through a variety of activities designed specifically for their age. Basic gymnastic skills are introduced through the use of games and with manipulatives. The goal of this class is to increase independence and have fun while learning gymnastics.
In the 2-3 class children learn to follow directions and wait their turn as they learn basic skills like different types of body shapes and movement, forward and backwards rolls, supporting themselves on the bars, and walks, kicks, and hops on the beam. In each class, they receive spotting on different gymnastics stations, using equipment specially designed for young children, until they learn use the station independently-- with plenty of mats and safety precautions, of course! Once they've mastered several different types of stations, they begin to walk from station to station, receiving help on only a few of them, and waiting their turn if another child is still using the next station.

Spirit Gymnastics Preschool Program
Once those skills are mastered in the 2-3 class, we begin playing more complex games and engaging in a wider range of activities and stations, children continue to expand the gymnastics skills and physical abilities from the 4-5 class, and begin learning such skills as hurdling onto a springboard for vault, handstands, pullovers on the bar, and cartwheels!
